Wings Goalie Petr Mrazek Makes Unbelievable Stick Save on Brian Boyle (Video)
The Detroit Red Wings were unable to close out their first-round series against the Tampa Bay Lightning at home during Game 6 on Monday, but it wasn’t the fault of their 23-year-old goaltender, Petr Mrazek.
Sure, he may have allowed four goals against on just 27 shots, but he wasn’t getting a whole lot of help from his defense, who left him out to dry on several occasions—including this one, which should have resulted in a Brian Boyle goal, had it not been for the stick of Mrazek.

Even after a save like that, the Wings still lost the game by a score of 5-2. Now they’ll need some more magic from Mrazek if they hope to win Game 7 in Tampa on Wednesday.
